Top Ten Tuesday #38



Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week's topic is Books I Meant to Read in 2018 but Didn't Get To. If you have been following my for a while, you know that I began a reading goal in 2017 to read a book about each president. I have failed big-time and am now going into year three with this goal. As such, it is a given that pretty much every book on my TBR about a president is one that I meant to read last year. And the year before. So, here are some I am super excited to read but have yet to get my hands on. All of have been on my Kindle for ages, except Michelle Obama's book, which I have been on the wait-list for at my library for weeks and am only up to #86 on like, 112 copies. 

Here's to knocking a few of these out in 2019.

So what's on your list? Leave a comment and a link to your TTT.

Happy Reading!

  3. Death in the City of Light- because Paris? Anything w/ Paris usually gets my attention, at least a bit. And Fries! Even though I don't realy eat them much I'm curious about that one. :)

    1. I have noticed that trend with you! The Fries book is even an illustrated guide, so I will probably be starving by the time I finish it.

  4. Looks like some very interesting books on here. I'm intrigued by Michelle Obama's book! (Sorry if you get this twice!) My TTT

    1. And it is even ILLUSTRATED! I should probably make or get some fries BEFORE I start reading it, right?? Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Oh good, I always feel like it is just me over here with the non-fiction. I am glad others have some titles like that as well - and she is amazing, so I know the book will be great!

  7. The Poisoner's Handbook sounds intriguing! Poison has such an interesting history.

    1. It really does! I am not usually interested in the Victorian age, but when it comes to poison, that really is the best era to read about. I have a few other poison books on my TBR also that I hope to get to this year.

      Delete
    2. The Vistorians did love a good poisoning. (So much opportunity for drama, and they did like an opportunity for drama.) (Too soon for Victorian poisoning jokes?)

      Delete
    3. It is NEVER too soon for Victorian poisoning jokes!

  10. Interesting mix of books - as always! Vodka and Fries.... Now *there's* a thought!!!

    1. Hmmm. I was a whisky girl in my younger years, so I am not sure vodka and fries would literally go well together though, lol.

  11. BTW - I've been thinking about our conversation regarding biogs of British Prime Ministers. Not really wanted to go all the way back to 1724 I thought I'd stick (at least to begin with) to the 20th century... It turns out that there were 21 PMs who had their entire terms in the 20th. Knocking out Teresa May (as she's still PM for now) that leaves 20 which is a reasonable number..... Say 5 a year at least..... that's do-able.... [grin]

    1. Oh come on, you could easily read 20 in a year, where's the challenge in five :P

      But seriously yes, that is a good goal. Breaking it up into parts is also the route I probably should have gone. It seems more manageable that way. we got this!

  12. That's a pretty interesting goal, to read a book about each president. I saw one book list that had a book from every country that sounded interesting. I haven't read any of the books on your list.

    1. Thanks! I think it is really interesting also...so I can't figure out why it is taking me so long! I like the country idea too. But I will probably save that until these darn presidents are out of the way first.

    1. With our TBRs, you know my list was way higher than ten! I honestly had about thirty in the original post before I was finally like, "No, this is crazy, just pick ten."

      Delete
  16. There were so many books I didn't get to last year that I don't even want to think about it!!
    Of your list The Journey Of Man looks like it could be interesting and I like a good poisoning story too.
    Good luck with getting Becoming. Maybe before Easter?

    1. I know how you feel, my list was suuuuuuper long and finally I decided to just pick nine randoms (plus Becoming) from the massive post I had created. Good news today, I am up to #46 on the hold list, I may get the book before Valentine's Day even!
